Local History

Middleton-in-Teesdale (County Durham)

Those of the parish who served in the First World War, WW2 and later conflicts are commemorated on a number of memorials around the village. The village memorial is in the form of an obelisk within a garden on an island site on Horsemarket, unveiled in 1921. Many of the local churches, including the Wesleyan Methodist Chapel on Horsemarket and St. Mary's Church, also contain war memorial plaques dedicated to fallen parishioners and individuals from the local area who fought and died in war.
